Easter is a time for new beginnings, and what better way to celebrate than with some festive decorations? Whether you're hosting an Easter brunch, lunch, or dinner or just want to add some Easter cheer to your home, decorating for Easter can be fun and easy. In this post, I will walk you through step-by-step how we decorate our home for Easter.
Step 1: Choose Your Colours
The first step to anything I decorate or design starts with choosing the colour theme. I personally love anything soft and neutral, with a touch of blush pink and muted tones. If you have followed our Humble journey, you would have seen the colour tones repeating in many of our photographs. This year's Easter colours include beige, white and a mix of pastels.
My rule of thumb with choosing colours is: “MAKE THE COLOURS FLOW”.
There is no right or wrong in choosing between dull or bright colours, but the key is ensuring your colours go together.
Step 2: Decorate Your Table
One of the easiest ways to decorate for Easter is to dress up your table.
I started by covering our table with a tablecloth. I have gone with Eston Check Tablecloth from Target Au. It is lovely and light. I love it and feel like it creates a bit of fun with the pattern. I then layered it with a table runner.
I placed a round wooden board in the middle of the table with a dried flower arrangement, a little clear glass jar with sugar-coated chocolate eggs and our Easter Tic Tac Toe. I place two wooden candle holders on either side of the centre piece with some pink pillar candles. This is the basic setup that will stay up for the next couple of weeks.
To set the table, I added some round paper placemats from Provincial Home Living. I absolutely love the watercolour hares on these placemats. I bought them a year ago and still have a heap left. I believe they still have the same ones with cork backing, which are more durable and available if you like the look.
I chose to mix and match some napkins and napkin rings. I bought a pack of Easter Gingham Napkins from Target and used some green stonewashed napkins I had at home to pair with them. I used Target Easter Bunny Napkin Rings and Dawson Napkin Rings from Pillow Talk.
I also pulled apart an Easter Egg Garland and placed a few eggs along the middle of the table for a pop of colour. And as the final touch, I added two white bunnies on both sides of the centrepiece.
Step 3: Entry
I like making our entry a little festive without going over the top. I have a wooden board next to the front door saying welcome and a wreath on the door with some rustic green and pampas grass features. For Easter, I have added a few decorative Easter eggs to bring in the season.
Step 4: Bunnies, Bunnies, Bunnies
Over the years, we have gained quite a collection of Easter bunnies... My favourite shop for Easter décor is Bed, Bath and Table! They never seem to fair, whether it is Christmas or Easter! I only buy a few special pieces that come out every year and become part of our Family tradition.
Step 5: Get the kids involved in the fun
I have decided to make a separate blog about this topic! Times are tough, and money is tight so I have put together a whole blog about Fun Easter Activities for any budget. Remember, the key is to have fun and get creative!
